“Fantastic location and beautiful rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Loved my stay here. Location is perfect - right next to slopes and Whistler village. Great amenities: indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, gym. Only visited restaurant for breakfast and the buffet was definitely above average. Rooms are especially nice and well maintained (the fireplace is a plus). Overall, would highly recommend.

Long weekend with family. Enjoyed every minute. Holiday crowds in hotel and on lift lines were tolerable, even at peak times. Concierge service was outstanding before and during stay. Mountain view room view was OK.. Not worth upgrade since we spent most time out of room and clouded in most of other times. Ski valet ($8 per pair per night) was nice but should be included for guests. Valet for car ($34+ per day) was not worth it especially since we did not use the car during stay. Pool was small and didn't 'feel clean'... Way too much chlorine! Location in village was very good ... <1minute walk...far enough away that noise was not an issue. Hope this is helpful.

Room Tip: Small but adequate kitchen. Not much from for family with lots of stuff.

This hotel is not the Four Seasons that is close by but it is a much lower priced option that gives you quick access to the village and the gondola at Whistler. The staff was polite and helpful the rooms are nice sized and attractive. I was upgraded to a one bedroom suite with a nice view. It was secluded and quiet. The bathroom was nicely done and modern. The restaurant has a nice breakfast buffet and the bar is a fun place to hang out before dinner with live music during the evening. The hotel sits right inside the village making it easy to walk to the shops and restaurants. The gondola is a two minute walk out the door and the hotel provides a ski valet for a fee. The spa is not exceptional but I've found that to be true at most ski resorts. They have an indoor/outdoor pool and both indoor and outdoor whirlpools. The gym is nice and looks right out onto the outdoor whirlpools which makes it a little uncomfortable for the people soaking in them. Overall, this is a great hotel for the price and its location cannot be beat.

Room Tip: The rooms at the end of the hallways will be quietest.

Every staff member we dealt with was very friendly and helpful. They all seemed sincerly happy to see you. Even staff you would pass in the hall would stop to say hello and wish you a good day. We used our Starwood points, so that made it great value, but we were still treated to great, friendly service.

The hotel was very nice & clean & the cooking facilities were excellent in the rooms. It was not a long walk from the hotel to the lifts as there was no snow in the village therefore could not ski in ski out. We hired our skis from a different company as reading Westins details we thought we had to pay $8 a day per person to store the skis in the hotel on top of the hire price but we think now it is only if you do not hire skis form them.However the ski rental company we used was very good (Affinity). There are plenty restaurants, pubs, bistros for all the family, some a bit pricey but that's Canada. Will certainly be back to Whistler & The Westin

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the slopes. As if ,like me, you get injured al least you can watch the sk...

Overall a great choice for Whistler - right in the village.

Pros:
- Location - easy walk to lower Village and nice stroll to upper Village
- Great staff - super helpful - found a fabulous running guide for me Black Diamond Fitness
- Large rooms w/ fireplaces and little kitchens
- Dog friendly! And I mean friendly - they were loving our on 60 lb Golden Retriever

Cons:
- Spa - less than average service that was expensive - with tip included on the front end
- Slow service in restaurant and bar - way under staffed for the amount of guests on multiple occasions
- Fine dining restaurant is awkward and totally open - feel like a lobby

Room Tip: Some rooms are timeshare ownership and seem to be larger

Our 8th trip to Whistler and first time at The Westin. Perfect position, ski in ski out, great Ski valet service, I felt almost embarrassed to hand my ski's to the staff at the bottom of the slope every night! The hotel spa was excellent too. Rooms comfortable, cleaned daily and plenty of room. Staff were helpful and the restaurant though a little pricey provided excellent food and a very good vegetarian selection. Its easy to knock Whistler but its still the best ski resort around for me and I will be staying at the Westin again.
